is in cities and metropolitan contraries because these are the engines of the economy, centers of trade and investment. top 100 metros so only one ace of the land mast, two-thirds of the population, three quarters of the gdp and on every indicator that matters, infrastructure and human capital and innovation. 75, 80, 85, 90% of the nations share. there really is no american economy. what we have is a network of metro economies and they're now stepping up and doing the hard work. >> but at the same time we all know that some of the toughest economic challenges are the state and local level. >> absolutely. but the great thing about metropolitan areas is they're not just governments. you know, the federal government is a government. state governments are government, metropolitan areas are networks. and we see that these networks are finding really creative and beneficial ways. >> rose: networks between what? >> networks of different companies, different philanthropic groups, different individuals, all coming together. they have loose or tight connections. and they can fund things more-- in
not only these philanthropic activities but also his look at the economy and his look at the alternative investment world. so welcome. >> good to be here. >> rose: let me start with the chinese scholars program. is it your hope to do something like cecil rows did with the rhodes scholarship. >> absolutely. what he was doing was a little bit defendant he was taking people from the british empire fundmentally plus america and sending them to oxford. he started his scholarship in 1920 which reflected the 19th century. >> rose: what are you trying to do. >> i'm trying to be in the 21st century using the same model of attracting terrific kids who finished college for a year in graduate school. these are kids that are going to be successful anyhow. what we're trying to do is create a group of future leaders, thought leaders from around the world. so we're going to have 45% americans, 20% chinese, and 35% from the rest of the world, from the top 20. >> rose: from latin america, from europe, from africa, from whatever. >> absolutely. and then what we're trying to do is introduce them to china
, the economy's going to try to do a lot of things, which is one open up our doors to people, for example, in harlem which is right around the corner from me. so it would be nice to have some of these great young athletes instead of playing basketball, for example, or football, that they choose tennis. and that there's a means and a ways possibly that they could get themselves from doing something possibly not good to possibly doing something great for their country. >> rose: and one of the great golf writers around, jaime diaz, talks about the u.s. open at marion. >> and tiger used to do it better than anyone. just like jordan would do it at the end of the game. that was allure and tiger had that allure. he still has it but he's been fighting himself to some extent and he hasn't been able to do it at a major and that's the ult mast test and that's the thing he lived for. drama now is seeie can do that again. rumsfeld. he calls it "rumsfeld's rules." >> and the greatest risk of people not measuring and not knowing progress, not having metrics is in nonprofits and government. because in bu
and internationally. but we've talking about the two biggest economies in the world. we have to get this relationship right and china does need to be a stakeholder and i think they recognize that but, look, but they have achieved such rapid growth and grown so fast, almost on steroids that there's a part of them that still thinks of themselves as this poor country that's got all these problems. the united states is the big cheese out there trying to dictate things, perhaps trying to contain our rise. so i think what you're seeing is maybe the desire to continue not to be responsible, not to be a full stakeholder, work the international system on something like trade or intellectual property rights. get as much as they can and be free writers and let the united states worry about the big hassles and problems. at the same time, a growing nationalist pride where they say we're big, too, and we should be seen as equals on the world stage and what we're saying to them is you can't pick and choose. you can't have all the rights of a major world power but none of the responsibilities. and if you accept both
because the economy is struggling. and i think the there's an issue with the time the game takes. it's a big issue. >> rose: you know, i rarely play 18. i play -- >> well, we're promoting nine holes now at "golf digest." >> rose: i am, too. >> it works better. there's a two and a half hour window in society and culture. >> rose: i didn't know that. that's great. >> uh-huh. the game is adapting. it wasn't for a long time. i think there's a sense that we're eternal and there will always be an audience for golf but now as the world changes the game is changing and i think it's healthy. >> rose: graham was here, he's from ireland. he comes from a middle-class family, hardworking family. he had total access to golf. we don't have that. >> rose: >> that is the measure i think. the biggest constant among tour players is they all had access to golf. that doesn't mean they all had country clubs. that's not true. it's usually public courses, scruffy, nine holes. but they played 45 holes a day. and that's how you get good. arnold palmer had that. >> rose: james -- he used to have a course. >> y
